In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
1:10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

I see that Divine Revelations heavily use metaphor, allegory and parables as means of educating our sophisticated technological society instead of the agrarian population that first received the message.
However, let's be honest here, the people of the time would have definitely related photosynthesis to sunlight allowing their plants to grow. The passage should be read as a general introduction without a strict sequence of events.
DS, The Bible was written two hundred years or so after the Crucifixion. Obviously there will be problems with the transcription of text and the sequencing of information.
Irrelevant of the scientific inaccuracy, the ehical parts of this book have inspired billions over the world to lead ethical and upright lives. Can you say the same for acolytes of Darwin and Dawkins?
Finally, I meant that the people to whom the Bible was revealed knew that the sun was needed for plant growth. They obviously knew that plants without sunlight would have died.

You're not that smart, are you?
Are stars the only source of Light?
Think about it.
Darkside made his post sound as if stars are the only source of light, when in fact they are not.
